He chose Mechanical Engineering as his subject course, but soon after completing his 1st year in Mechanical Engineering; he slid into Civil Engineering.
After that, he started a theatre-cum-club with his friends, where they performed acts and plays. But, after lacking audiences in the theatre, the group created a Band. A Band of Boys. No! Not that one. So the Band started performing English songs. Unfortunately, the numbers of English song-lovers are even less than that of art-lovers in his college, so they switched the lyrics to Hindi and continued their shows.
Soon after completing his graduation, Naveen got a job. Within a month, he was posted to London, where he worked for a Telecom company.
Later, he quit the job for his genuine passion, i.e., acting, and moved back to Mumbai. And the interesting part is that Naveen lied to his parents that he was on vacation and would be back to work. So he started attending various acting classes and plays, and from there, the struggle of actor Polishetty began.
